LA natives Bleached, consisting of sisters Jennifer and Jessie Calvin, make their roots clearly visible in their sound, which can only be described as vintage California melodic rock and roll with a touch of punk. The evolution of Bleached began when the Calvin sisters formed Mika Miko, and all-girl punk band that earned international acclaim, but ultimately the band ran its course and resulted in a break up. The sisters then split up, taking a much-needed breather before finding each other again in LA to form the band now known as Bleached. This year, the duo released their first full-length album ‘Ride Your Heart’, a perfect record to blast during a road trip adventure with friends or on a breezy summer day. They recently toured with California favorites Best Coast and will be heading out on The Weezer Cruise in February. Bleached are currently on tour around the U.S. and Europe. Visit their facebook for a complete list of tour dates.
